Oman’s Travel Regulation regarding Covid-19

Oman’s authorities have given an overview of Oman’s Travel Regulation regarding Covid-19 for future visitors entering the country via the airports. I suspect many requirements will also apply if arriving by road or sea, especially insurance and reserved accommodation. Always check with your own Foreign Ministry for their travel advice and with the airline you use for up-to-date information as it is very likely to change periodically. Critical is the entry visa – best obtained through the eVisa page.

All arrivals must have health insurance that covers the cost of their Covid-19 care for a period of up to one month.
